Siblings 2017 – November

I am very late uploading this. In fact I think it’s the latest I’ve published my Siblings post ever! It’s been a hectic month for us as a family with lots of adventures and settling in to our new home. Generally life seems the busiest it has ever been and I’m struggling to juggle everything. P1 has been leading a …

#MakeTracks With A Family & Friends Railcard This Autumn

I pop on a train quite frequently for blog related shindigs but it’s actually quite rare for us to go with the kids or as a family.

Christmas Gifts For Under £5 With #sdfiverchallenge

For me Sports Direct is associated with my husbands pants and socks. He won’t buy them from anywhere else. We was recently challenged to find some Christmas gifts online for under £5.

P2’s First Parents Evening

I just love how things are getting technology based and that you can now book parent evening slots online now! So much easier. We teased P2 about parents evening from the moment we booked it. We kept asking her whether her teachers would tell us that she’s been naughty and cheeky. Don’t worry, she found it funny. I had been …

Spending Time With My Girls

It’s been a weird day. One I want to cherish forever but also one that could quite happily be brushed under the doormat. My eyes opened to the usual cries for “Mummy” from one possibly two of the girls. It’s Sunday so I ushered both P2 and P3 into my bed, shoving Hubby further towards the wall so we could …

Finally We Have Our Forever Family Home

I have lived in a total of six properties since having P1 nearly nine years ago. Each one I have rented and due to strict rules, I have never decorated because I felt I was making somebody elses home better. I day dreamed about the day that I could hang photos, decorate a room and truly make somewhere my own. …

Last Summer Sunday At Penshurst Place

I felt a lot of guilt and a lot of excitement all at once about our visit to Penshurst Place for their last Summer Sunday event of the summer. We had decided to leave P3 with my MiL because she had spent the majority of the previous two weeks being super grumpy and we had all been craving some peace. …
